Throughout the years, ACWC has celebrated blossoming young artists in Windham County while recognizing the teachers and school infrastructures that help these students flourishing. This year's 37th annual Student Art Month gives annual recognition to the outstanding visual art created by Windham County's elementary, middle school, and high school students. In 2016, ACWC provided a spotlight for over 300 pieces of featured student work from 18 schools. The celebration and kick-off of Student Art Month will take place on Friday, March 3, at 5 p.m. at The Robert H. Gibson River Garden, 157 Main Street, in Brattleboro. This year, Student Art Month shares space with Brattleboro Time Trade's Spring Forward event. Both events feature performances by young musicians Nomad vs. Settler and Raspberry Jam. Check out updates on our Facebook Event page. Throughout March, the 2D High School art will be at the River Garden Gallery (and the 3D works will be at the Vermont Artisans Gallery on the 2nd floor at 106 Main St.). Elementary school artists will be exhibited at Brooks Memorial Library and other public places throughout downtown Brattleboro. Artwork created by high school students will be judged by a panel of professional artists. Awards are given for Best of Show in various categories and Special Commendations to many high school student artists. The public also has the opportunity to vote for their favorite pieces in our "People’s Choice Awards" throughout the month. Mon. through Sat., 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
